What can you tell me about copyright insurance

http://smallbusiness.chron.com/insurance-coverage-copyright-infringement-62370.html

has some basic information.

I believe it is common for the producers of a movie to get such insurance, which would cover claims against the writers, actors and anyone else involved.

What if I'd like over 250,000,000$ as example
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I'm not sure how munch can copyright can sued

You would have to ask an insurance agent how much that would cost. That seems like more coverage than you would ever need.

The remedies for infringement of a registered copyright are posted at

You should not post your idea ehre in public if you have not already registered the copyright. You can email it to me by sending an email to***@******.*** and write For N Cal Atty as the subject line of the email. The site usually gets emails to me within a few days.

Every case is different. Software copyright infringement claims can exceep $10,000,000 but movie infringement claims usually do not.

You are correct but the case was settled and I have no way of knowing the amount of the settlement.

What u were referring before

It is hard to answer such a general question. I think you need to consult a local attorney who can go over the facts with you in confidence.

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Could u try

I am sorry but this web site is set up to answer questions, not to do in depth research. Please consult a local attorney if you want that type of research done.
